Another week, another day has passed in my ISM journey.
I have decided to completely change my final product. At first, I was working solo and planning to do a seminar focusing on how parents can better communicate sexual education to their adolescents, however, now I have decided to partner up with another ISM public health student from Liberty, Axum Taylor.
Last week I mentioned working with another ISM public health student, but we were not completely sure of our idea yet. We knew that we wanted to have a collective final product , therefore, this week was really focus on communicating what we need to do and what we can accomplish. As a result, we have decided to create a website over a collaborative, cumulative research on self-taught sexual education for students ranging from the primary and secondary level.
Moreover, I am excited to hear today that my mentor has been approved, and now I can start official visits! I have some interest in working in health related government, however, in comparison to my knowledge in becoming a doctor, I lack knowledge on how to become a public health official. To cope with the lack of information, I will start I will communicate with my mentor and schedule a visit as soon as possible so I can start my new adventure of learning how public health works into government.
